EXCLUSIVE CONTRIBUTIONS WITH PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE STARS OF THE GAME REVEAL FASCINATING INSIGHTS INTO THE PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL ELEMENTS OF FOOTBALL, AND THE “FOOTBALL INTELLIGENCE” REQUIRED TO MAKE IT TO THE TOP
The future of football!
Football today is big business. The ‘Big 5’ European leagues have combined revenues in excess of €14billion, and each of the top 20 players in the world earned over £10million per year. So, it is little wonder that so many children around the world dream of making it in professional football.
Yet for every multi-millionaire Premier League star, there are hundreds of thousands of players struggling to build a career. Outstandingly talented players fall out of the game, and even many of those who make it to the top struggle with the pressures of fame and expectations. The margins between stardom and obscurity are small – in some cases it is on-field ‘football intelligence’ that makes the difference, but for others it is mindset, emotional literacy and mental resilience.
Soccology explores what really goes on in the hearts and minds of professional footballers. Through the facilitation of specified programmes, comparative research and a series of exclusive interviews with stars of the game, including Gael Clichy, Fabian Delph, Willy Caballero, Wesley Hoedt, Quinton Fortune, Leon Britton and many more. Soccology examines what ‘football intelligence’ really means, the link with gang culture and mental health specifically within the world of football.
Soccology provides invaluable education for aspiring players, their coaches and their parents, to help everyone understand the real physical, emotional and psychological elements of the game.
